Suri Cruise’s early life, age, famous parents, family, and childhood
Suri Cruise was born on 18th April 2006 in Santa Monica, California, the USA and is currently 12 years old. She is the only daughter of Hollywood industry’s top actors Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise. Suri Crusie’s paternal grandparents are Mary Lee Pfeiffer and Thomas Mapother III. Mary Lee Pfeiffer was an educator and has died recently in February 2017.
Thomas Mapother III worked as an electrical engineer. He too had expired way back on 9th January 1984. Suri Cruise’s maternal grandparents are Kathleen A. Stothers-Holmes and Martin Joseph Holmes Sr. Kathleen used to do philanthropy work while her husband and Suri’s maternal grandfather was a lawyer.
Suri Cruise lives in a single parent household. Her parents had divorced when she was just 6 years old. Suri Cruise’s father Tom Cruise is a staunch believer and supporter of Scientology. The reason for the divorce was the fact that Katie realized that Tom was trying to treacherously indoctrinate her daughter with his religious beliefs.
She also felt that Tom’s Scientology followers were intruding into her personal and private life and not allowing her to discipline Suri the way Katie wanted to. Suri felt she was being watched and did not want her daughter to suffer during her tender years. Hence she separated from Tom Cruise.
Suri Cruise’s education and schooling
Suri Cruise was enrolled in 2012 at the prestigious Convent of the Sacred Heart School situated at Manhattan Upper East side. It is a private and Roman Catholic girl’s school. She now attends the Avenues school in Chelsea, New York. It is a state-of-the-art school which boasts of high-tech learning.
Its annual fee is around $ 40000 and is oversubscribed. Students here would learn and become fluent in at least one other language which could be Mandarin.
The pupils would be using iPads to study instead of the usual books. Hence heavy bag loads would be averted. The aim of this school is to produce digital and ethical citizens. The canteen of this school serves healthy foods including tofu.
Her school uniform consists of a navy blue polo shirt and sky blue skirt. Suri Cruise is dropped to and picked up from her school mostly by her mother Katie Holmes. The mother-daughter duo enjoys themselves after school in the form of having some lemonade or snacks or some shopping.
Suri Cruise’s time with her parents- Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise?
Suri Cruise is being reared single-handedly by her mother Katie. She has not seen her father for a very long time. They have also not spoken on the phone. Katie has kept Suri away from Tom. Even his father’s day this year was celebrated without Suri. But Tom does long for his daughter at times. He misses her but knows that he would not be able to meet her till she is in college and away from Katie’s influence.
Suri Cruise enjoys her time with her mother. Katie had taken her to the Kids Choice awards function in 2015 and Suri had thoroughly enjoyed herself there. She is also spotted on many outings with her mother. Little Suri is quite a disciplined child. Katie celebrates her birthdays in an adorable and loving manner with plenty of cakes, gifts, and personal birthday wishes.
She has her own fashion style which is liked by the media and fans. Her new summer look and dressing style has fascinated many. It is no doubt shaped by her mother but Suri has her own independent style as well. This young fashionista has inspired many kids and fashion world people with her chic wear.
The media is ever eager to know about this little daughter of TomKat. Suri Cruise has received the Razzie award for the most tiresome tabloid target!
Katie might lose custody
Following the silence that Katie and Nicole Kidman has managed, there have been speculation as to why the star actresses are silent about the controversial Church of Scientology.
Leah Remini questioned:
“I keep wondering — why haven’t Katie Holmes or Nicole Kidman spoken out?”
She then shared:
“I assume they were forced to sign prohibitive documents. Trust me, Katie’s not allowed to have a meal with me and we used to be close friends. She could lose custody of Suri. It’s quite sick, really.”
“[They] are harassed constantly, especially me. Members of the church go to my mother’s restaurant, confront my little sister and my stepkids in San Francisco, trying to intimidate us. These abusive scare tactics are what they call a religion.”
